About Sanderling Mews

Orbit Homes are excited to introduce Sanderling Mews, a new development consisting of 28 well-appointed homes in the seaside town of Herne Bay. Our range of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes are all available with Shared Ownership.

Situated on the eastern edge of Herne Bay, Sanderling Mews enjoys the very best that Kent has to offer. All the essentials, like supermarkets, banks, a leisure centre and a selection of schools are just minutes away, but there is so much more to enjoy nearby.

Herne Bay’s town centre provides a great selection of independent shops along with many high street favourites, while the regular local market offers endless fresh produce and unique treasures.
There’s also plenty to keep the whole family entertained. Enjoy fun and games at the pleasure pier and amusement arcades, see what’s on at the Victorian bandstand and gardens, catch a show at the Kings Hall concert hall, a film at the Kavanagh cinema or join many other revellers at the town’s annual festival or carnival.

For a little more choice, the city of Canterbury is a short drive south and offers a great selection of retail, restaurants and entertainment. Or if you fancy a change of scenery, take a trip along the coast to the nearby resorts of Whitstable and Margate.
While this fantastic list of amenities is compelling enough, possibly the biggest reason to live at Sanderling Mews is the spectacular outdoors. Three of the town’s prettiest open spaces are within a few minutes’ walk or drive, all providing fantastic ways to get away from it all. Take a morning stroll along the picturesque beach, search for rare birdlife at The Downs reserve or explore the fantastic Reculver Country Park and its ancient ruined towers.
Alternatively, excitement can be found at one of the many water sports clubs based along the coast, including sailing, rowing and yachting. There is also an angling association that is always happy to welcome new members.
While Sanderling Mews provides the perfect place to escape the trappings of modern life, it is also very well connected to the city, the country and the rest of the world. There are direct trains to London, good road links to Gatwick Airport and the Port of Dover is less than an hour’s drive south.
